Hey guys,

I'm new here in the Icy Veins forums and would like to request your assistance.

So this is my Mage https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/14478881 haven't been playing Legion for a long time (around 2 weeks and a half), been trying to start rading so I would like to improve my DPS, I'm running GS.

What I would like to ask you guys is if you could check me out and see what I could improve, it's been hard to get some more gear now since it's hard to get into groups, plus my pawn addon seems like its kind of bugged which is kind of confusing me about gear/stats. I know my stat priority for GS Build but nor sure about stat weigths for it.

Hope you guys can help me, thank you in advance !

Hey! I have looked through the logs quickly and noticed just a few things.

Initially you arent doing too badly, alot of mages you are competing with around your ilvl comes from Nighthold and have the 2 and 4 set from there, which is a bit of a dps boost. And most of them also have 2 legendaries which is obviously a boost to both stats and dps output.

You should try to get 52 points in your weapon as quickly as possible to enable the Concordance proc. And also farm legendary eligible content to get your second legendary, even if its a bad one its still a big boost to your stats!

 

The biggest problem i see here is your stats, looking at wow armory you're currently at 25% crit. Getting up to around 33% (shattercap) is really important for your dps as it allows you to shatter every IL and/or GS. GS itself is an okey build with your ilvl, but falls of rather fast once you reach heroic and onwards because of all the movement. Which means you should start thinking about going TV instead.

So your main prio at the moment is Critical Strike. You should also start prepotting (using a dps pot 2-3 seconds before the fight starts) so you have 2 pots during the fight, and also right after prepotting you should cast a FB so its in the air when the boss is pulled. :)

While we're still talking about gear you should also try to replace your trinket, i see you do have Terror From Below but arent using it on the Heroic logs. Its one of the best trinkets you can have, together with Tarnished Sentinels Medallion. So if you can you should also try to get your hands on that.

 

Your rotation seems okey enough, but i notice that you got some moments during the fights were you arent casting anything. Your goal should be to always be casting, and with Shimmer and a bit of pre-planning the mechanics that should be totally doable. Plan your movement and be sure to check out and know what the boss is going to do and fix your positioning so you dont get too much downtime. :)

      So, I've been rather disheartened by my current DPS as a sub rogue in tomb. I feel that I have the burst windows down with the rec'd talents, my opener is usually solid unless affected by mechanics, not to mention ilvl, but I'm hitting nowhere near the burst damage of other sub rogues that not only are my ilvl but over 10 or 15 lower - even without the t20 two piece. And not just burst, but overall damage output, I'm nowhere up to par making the numbers that other sub rogues are. 
      The only thing that I have noticed when using the compare feature on warcraft logs is : every person parsing above ~850k has the convergence of fates trinket, and the denial of the half giants wrist leggie. (Mantle is also typically what they have too, but I've seen others with the leggies I have of insignia of ravenholdt or valeera legs.)
      Is sub's dps right now really that dependent on the uptime of shadow blades as to why we are parsing as top spec for tomb since the class changes? I understand how powerful it is, but the fact of the matter is that RNG has not decided to bestow upon me either the trinket or legendary, so any fight longer than two minutes or so my dps and damage is down the drain. Should I be rolling with different talents to compensate for my lack of these things to get better results? I've played around with not using death from above and it wasn't a gain, as did AMR tell me that it wouldn't be, as well as running sims with my current gear and other talent combos amr always tells me I won't get the best results.
       Or I have wondered, I see people saying about not backstabbing too much. Is it truly a dps gain to just stand there autoattacking? The combo points generated automatically are slow to come when they do, and I fear pooling for that long just autoattacking will result in a damage loss? 
      Here is a link to my logs page. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/cenarion-circle/adassos# I have seen an increase with my gain of ilvl, but it's poor and I'm still in the lowest percentiles for spec and ilvl. Any advice or if it truly is based on those rng items would be helpful, thanks.

      Hi guys, I'm new here in Icy Forums but always checked the site for information, you guys do an awesome job. I'm dpsing in Legion as a Ret Pally and I'm having a little issues with dps constancy. I can easily do a burst of 300k in one target fight, but when I look overall my dps is always near 190k. I will put some info to see if you guys could help me to see what I'm doing wrong.
      My armory Armory - Saskov (Gallywix)
        The rotation I usually do is: (burst) Crusade, Greater Judgment,       if AoE:  Wake of Ashes - Divine Storm - Crusader Strike - Divine Storm - Blade of Justice - 
       
      Divine Storm - Crusader Strike
      Single Target: Blade of Justice - Crusader Strike - Templar's Verdict or Justicar's Vengeance when low life Wake of Ashes to fill Blade of Justice cd
      A log of my guild 7/7N EN https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68NG1QXkH2Zpg4jb/#type=damage-done&source=11 Really don't know what I can do to improve it, I had a complete revamp of stats (I was advised to focus Haste till 22% > Crit = Vers > Mastery)
      I thank you guys since now.

      ok need some help here. I have followed the Fury guide from this site and almost have the stats in alignment with what is suggested from it. I have been trying to upload combat logs from Ask Mr Robot but I keep getting some error where I cannot add my gear to it and then it tells me to close app. So this is what I have so far. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/hyjal/Tabock/advanced
      As for my rotation i hit rampage when it procs all the time, I also use Bloodthirst and rarely use furious slash. I use it more it seems as a filler. I do however use the talented version of Raging Blow, it does a lot of dmg. I really seem to WW a lot when in doubt a lot, a lot. I also use Bladestorm usually when my cd's are active.
      If I make Rampage and Raging Blow up at all times and when I do I see a slight boost in my dps. but otherwise it is trash right now...:(
      So I will need help if somebody would be so kind as to maybe give me some direction toward uploading combat logs. Thank you ahead of time for your help.

      I hope that links right - I have no logs on Butcher/etc, but this is the most stand-still raid encounter I can think of. I hope that's okay! I didn't have to do more than a little moving, and this is pretty indicative of my DPS in most encounters that aren't a lot of cleaving or movement (My dps is pretty bad in fights like Xul'H or Iskar as well, but they're probably a lot harder to read)
       
      Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/bloodscalp/Sunfury/simple
       
      As you can see, I have a mix of mythic dungeon, heroic and normal HFC gear, and a few pieces of baleful I'm not yet rid of.
       
      normalized stat weights given by my own simcraft runs are
       
      Int 1
      Spell Power: .89 (due to archmage's ring)
      Haste: .57
      Mastery: .67
      Multi: .62
      Crit: .57
      Versa: .51
       
      My rotation is the same as the one listed on icy veins/altered time/etc -> I do admit that I make some mistakes, sometimes I split a cast on a crystal and it despawns before the cast lands, sometimes I supernova when I could have held it for my next crystal, etc.
       
      1. Prepot on pull
      2. stack Arcane Charges to 4/let boss get positioned
      3. Drop crystal + arcane power
      4. PoM Arcane Blast + 2 Super novas
      5. Arcane Blast/Arcane Missile to 50% mana
      6. Evocation
      7. Stack AC to 4
      8. Expend missile charges
      9. Arcane Barrage
      10. Repeat 7-9 until evocation has 20sec left
      11. Drop Crystal + charge and commence burn phase
       
      With Supernova being used on cooldown when I'm not really close to 50% mana or have a really good reason to hold it (like crystal coming up soon, or lots of adds soon)
       
      I realize that I only have the 690 ring and don't have any good trinkets, which is a big deal, but that can't account for all of my crappy DPS - I'm looking at my log rankings and they're all <20th percentile for my ilvl, so I must be doing something wrong.
       
      Any help would be great!

      Question: I feel like I should be doing ALOT more DPS for the gear that I have but I can't seem to go higher than 50k. I have the opener burst down mostly but keeping the damage up seems to be trouble. I've played using defile, breath, and necroblight but find that breath is usually where I do more DPS. Any tips on how to pump out better numbers? When I have breath I usually try to take advantage of using AMS to absorb magic damage for extra runic power but It doesn't seem to be helping to much.
       
       
      EDIT: gonna try DW frost. I don't think I have the gear for unholy
